Id say most modern cars unless stock or little or nothing done to it are ruined, but thats me.


its not how you take the picture, its the final result before editing.

I use indirect lighting. Many people told me, don't light the car, light the surroundings. A white wall/ceiling works wonders, but am trying a LARGE PLM this time around to see if I can get similar results..

Thats pretty tough unless you have surfaces on all sides to bounce light off of. If you park in the open somewhere there would be nothing to bounce off of.

Quattro I am not professional so I may be wrong, but I suggest cloning tool or autoheal brush on photoshop. I used the healing tool on the front bump of the cobra to get rid of the relections from the flash.

That might be an option, have to take some shots of my black car and try learning how the healing brush works. thanks

Love it. Great shot, and I'm digging the post processing.

I have been lurking in this thread for a long time now, and trying out lots of stuff with my Canon EX580II flash units ... now I can finally show you some of the things I've been trying :

Setup:

IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_12.jpg

The result :

another one ... the setup : there is a second EX580II at camera left just outside the frame
IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_23.jpg

the result after some post processing :
IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_02.jpg

Third attempt :
IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_24.jpg

final shot :
IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_25.jpg

and a fourth one that went through some serious post processing :
IMAGE: http://www.carphototutorials.com/photo/flash_28.jpg
Didn't think about taking a setup shot, but the setting was simple, one EX580II pointed at the floor in front of the car and a second EX580II at camera left pointed at the side taking care not to have a hot spot.

I've actually written down how I made these shots so you can learn from my mistakes, feel free to read my post (external link) and let me know what I improve.

Well thank you, I really appreciate some feedback on the tutorials ... some of them do take a lot of time to put together ... should be posting a new one every two weeks from now on.

This is my first post on this forum after intensive reading.

Did not take a setup picture. But a basic 580EX shot bare from 3 different locations and merged together on PS. Still room to improve.

Will be trying light painting next. Only concern is, how can I power a fluorescent bulb if I don't have an external battery pack?
